No your 9a. But real world experiance would say your 9b. North of claracona gets much colder in the last few years. Could be a cycle but I dont know. As far as micro climates I got some tropicals growing 30min south of Ga in Lakecity. Hibiscus being the most tender. But I take a hit here with my travlers palms due to north winds

It has just been two weeks and we already have 28 members in the Florida LawnSite Group. The largest group right now has 30 members, so with 3 more people, we will pass them up. If you know of other people on here from Florida, tell them to join.

I'm up for meeting all of you in person sometime. We could do it at some conference or Chuck, you could just set a time and a place and we can see who can make it.

Thanks

Just a thought here : But I like CK's idea of us all getting together. There is a lot of things we could discuss.

One thing I would think all of us could benefit from is if we created our own little coop in Central FL. If we worked as a group - our cost on many of the items that we use everyday could go down due to our size and negotiating power. Everything from live goods to fert. to equipment there is power in numbers. Imagine if we all agreed on a particular equipment brand - fleet deals suddenly become possible even for the smallest of us. So anyone interesting in getting together yet?

Orlando!

I'm on the south side by the airport

BearWise Landscapers helped me with my insurance a couple of weeks ago. You should all give them a call. Great rates and great service!

I hope to meet all of you soon

Mike what your talking about is a co-op. For anyone who doubts the reality of such a group it really is common. Look at the Nursery trades. Roots plus growers, fnat, citrus co-op, cattlemens assotiation. All these groups come together as one group throught the state. They but as a group and get discounts that only the big comps could normaly get. It would be nice to buy a single bag of fert for the price that tru green pays. Same with insurance. If you had 1000 members to a trade group you have a bit more weight. You have more say in legislation. if governed correct were as to only allow top notch members could really be a selling point

Where are all of you South Florida and Panhandle guys?
Central FLorida is still leading in the votes with 22. South Florida has 8 and North Florida only has 4 votes.

Where are all the LawnSite members from North Florida and South Florida?


I expected South Florida to have the most members on this website.
